The Legend of Cocaine Island — Official Trailer


added: Fri, Mar 15th '19

"This is a southern fairy tale..." about how a financially strapped Florida businessman got "a plane, a pilot and a plan" and tried to find a mythical bag of cocaine that was supposedly buried somewhere on a remote Caribbean island.

Check out the official trailer for Netflix's latest original documentary "The Legend of Cocaine Island," directed by Theo Love, who previously helmed the critically acclaimed crime documentary "Little Hope Was Arson."

The Netflix film tells the ridiculous true story of Rodney Hyden, a small business owner, a family man, and a dreamer from Central Florida who believed in a local urban legend and thought he could strike it rich by going on a treasure hunt through the Caribbean.

"The Legend of Cocaine Island" is scheduled to premiere globally on Netflix March 29th.

Rodney Hyden is an American dreamer: a small business owner and family man from Central Florida. But after he's wiped out by the Great Recession, Rodney hears a story that could be his ticket out of his mounting debt: a tale of a map, an island and buried treasure. Fueled by a combination of economic desperation and blissful ignorance, Rodney hatches a plan to retrieve a possibly mythical $2-million stash of cocaine from its reported Caribbean hiding place. With the help of a colorful group of misfits -- and without prior drug-running experience -- Rodney sets out in pursuit of his very own American dream, with surprising results.
